Jordin Sparks opened up about her boyfriend Sage the Gemini and spoke about the developing relationship, her first after the split with Jason Derulo. She also shared a few tidbits about her new album, ‘Right Here Right Now’ in a new interview.
The 25-year-old Jordin Sparks is back on the music scene, and as she herself explains in lavish details and out of the singles scene. It’s been quite a few years since she’s released a new album, and so there is much fanfare over ‘Right Here, Right Now.’ The highly anticipated album is her first major-label release since 2009’s ‘Battlefield.’ Last November she put out a mixtape, #ByeFelicia, her first, when she announced the forthcoming album.
Yes, it’s been a while. And for that matter, it’s been a while since she was an American Idol winner nearly a decade ago. Time marches on, and now for Sparks, both an album and a boyfriend are subjects she’s willing to talk about with ETOnline.
She was in headlines not for new music, unfortunately, but for a highly publicized breakup with a fellow R&B music star, Jason Derulo. It was one of those splits that played out in headlines, rumor, gossip and speculation.
She’s now dating Sage the Gemini. She told ETOnline, “It’s very early, but I’m not the type of person who stays in a relationship if I can’t see it going further than a casual relationship.”
She went on to say of the man — whom she revealed she calls her “Baemaxx” — I could see marriage but we haven’t really planned anything. He does call me his wife, though.”
Well, that sound more than a bit serious, and, add to that, she’s telling the whole world! She went on to say, “”He’s a really great guy. He’s super sweet and very talented and makes me very, very happy.”
Sparks then mused about love and relationships and told the celebrity news outlet, “I feel like it happens at different times for everybody.”
As for the new music, she just debuted the album’s title track and lead single and its music video in an event at Times Square in New York City. The video has drawn much notice as she is seen looking quite enticing as she dances in the midst of the desert.
Speaking of her musical evolution since ‘Battlefield’ she said, “I’ve used my voice in different ways. “The content is different. I feel like this one is more personal, and you can hear the growth in my voice.”
She said of the significance of the album title, “I have music right here, right now. I’m coming into my own right here, right now, and all we have is right here, right now.”
